FIRE DEPARTMENT SPOTLIGHTED
The 2010 Firefighter of the year went to Firefighter Russell Chad Morgan. Diane Xavier EDITOR
The Balch Springs Fire Department held its annual award banquet recently.The Department has been serving the city of Balch Springs since its foundering. Battalion Chief Randy Smith said he and his staff love serving the citizens. “The biggest reward for us as firefighters is that our staff is here to help,” Chief Smith said. “By nature we are care-
givers. The older you get, you become an accommodator and you like helping family, friends, and neighbors. We try to take care of residents when we show up at someone’s house who just suffered a fire. It is often the worst days of their lives. They lost everything or their loved ones, and our job is stop them from being injured and make them feel better. This is just temporary. We give you information
to help you recover and we give you a booklet, ‘After the Fire,’ which is a hand out book on how to overcome a tragedy like this.” “The banquet is held to recognize firefighters who are celebrating either their 5th, 10th, or 15th year as a firefighter with our organization,” Chief Smith said. “We also hand out awards for perfect attendance, firefighters who sell items during special events, and who volunteer many hours. We hand out plaques and other items to celebrate our staff, including Firefighter of the year.” The 2010 Firefighter of the year went to Firefighter Russell Chad Morgan. “We had lost one of our firefighters in 2009 to cancer, firefighter Pete Rose and Chad stepped up and helped his family in making sure their family knew what was going on with the firefighter’s group during Pete’s illness and everything else,” Chief Smith said. “Chad visited the family often and helped them out a lot.” The group also is very active in community service. “We attend a lot of the block parties, church’s day out and we usually send help to other regions,” Chief Smith said. “We helped out with the West Texas fires by having some of our staff
help with the task force in San Angelo.” Chief Smith said the department will always be there for its community. “The citizens are our customers because that’s the people we take care of and that I deal with on a daily basis,” he said. “They don’t know where to go when the rest of the city is closed on the weekends. We are open 24/7. We give them information on where they need to go.” Chief Smith has served as a firefighter for 26 years. “We know a lot of citizens by first name and we see them at the store and restaurant,” he said. “Our goal is to help them recover from tragedies such as a fire.” Chief Smith said the department helps with national disasters as well. “When we had Hurricane Katrina, our staff raised $6,000 to $7,000 dollars to house people, put them in hotels, get them gas money and help them get to New Mexico,” Chief Smith said. We handed $200 to $300 dollars to people who needed assistance with entities coming our way.” Chief Smith said his staff really appreciates its Fire Chief, Gary Brown. “Chief Gary Brown is doing and outstanding job and our staff is really happy here and doing well because of his leadership,” Chief Smith said.

The recent death of terrorist Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan has brought mixed reactions throughout the nation. It has bought closure to many families who lost their loved ones as a result of the 911 terrorist attacks in New York. Others are saddened by the reaction of some people who celebrated with joy on hearing of the death of Bin Laden, saying death of another human being, no matter what their sins were, should not be celebrated but instead should be a time to pray and reflect for that person to reach salvation and grace through God. Whatever people may feel, U.S. Troops have put their lives on the line in order to protect our country and provide us with freedom that we have in this country. They often sacrifice time spent with their families and loved ones in order to serve our county.

Even though people are generous and give back to our soldiers through care packages and other stuff, life can still be overwhelming for these troops. Often, they do not get to communicate with their loved ones back home and need help in doing so. That is why local businesses such as MetroPCS are giving back to our troops. The Dallas-Fort Worth Freedom Rings Tour bus visited Balch Springs and took donations for Cell Phones for Soldiers, a non-profit organization that recycles old cell phones into prepaid calling cards for U.S. troops stationed overseas. MetroPCS’ partnership with Cell Phone for Soldiers is part of an initiative to ensure more cell phones are recycled so every soldier has means to call home. The bus tour visited various MetroPCS store locations in Balch Springs such as the Visionfone store in Bruton Road, the Wireless Stop store on Elam
Road, and the Wireless Stop store on Spring Oaks in Balch Springs. “There are two reasons why we are doing this,” said Justin Miller, the Freedom Rings Tour Manager. “One is to promote the new Huawei phone and the other is to collect old cell phones and then we take those phones and after 45 days, convert them into calling cards for our soldiers.” “This started because there was a troop overseas who had nearly $8,000 in phone bills to pay because he was calling his family overseas from Iraq to the U.S.,” Miller said. “This program was based on that one experience on how ridiculously expensive it is to make overseas calls and that there are really not cell phone towers overseas there to let soldiers use cell phones in order to make calls to their families back home.” Miller said the partnership aims to provide more calling funds for soldiers Continued Page 8

GARLAND- Phalconstar Communications last week announced the appointment of Justin David Tate as new associate publisher of Balch Springs Sentinel. Tate replaces Diane Xavier who had held the position since Oct. 2010. Prior to that appointment she served the Sentinel’s senior editor. Ms. Xavier moves to head up the company’s Garland Journal News operations. Tate will be responsible for the day-to-day operation of the Sentinel including editorial, marketing and distribution
activities. He will be supported by the company’s Greenville, Texas based marketing staff. “Mr. Tate is a great fit for the Sentinel,” said Phalconstar Newsgroup senior executive Will Hobdy. “He’s a resident of the city, and it’s a great opportunity for him to be able to fine tune it with his vision of what matters most to the growing numbers of Balch Sentinel readers. Founded in Oct. 2008, the Balch Springs Sentinel has about 4,600 readers. At one point it was delivered to about 7,000 homes in Balch Springs. Since then
the company has downgraded the publication’s frequency and reduced its staff to stop the bleeding. “On paper it was a good business model but with the economy turning upside down at the peak of the Great Recession advertisers melted away,” says Hobdy. “But the Sentinel is the little paper who can,” he continued. “Even with the impossible challenges our previous teams have faced in Balch Springs the publication keeps right on racking up impressive numbers in reader and advertiser satisfaction.”

Reader Advisory: the National Trade Association we belong to has purchased the following classifieds. Determining the value of their service or product is advised by this publication. In order to avoid misunderstandings, some advertisers do not offer “employment” but rather supply the readers with manuals, directories and other materials designed to help their clients establish mail order selling and other businesses at home. Under NO circumstance should you send any money in advance or give the client your checking, license ID, or credit card numbers. Also beware of ads that claim to guarantee loans regardless of credit and note that if a credit repair company does business only over the phone it’s illegal to request any money before delivering its service. All funds are based in US dollars. 800 numbers may or may not reach Canada.
